The Chain Bridge is one of Budapest's most famous landmarks. The magnificent suspension bridge was built in the 19th century across the river Danube to connect Pest with Buda, at the time still separate cities.
The Chain Bridge was the first permanent bridge in Budapest; the nearest bridge was in Vienna and during wintertime the only way to cross the Danube was by taking a ferry. A temporary bridge was only available in the summer: it had to be disassembled each year to protect it against drift ice.

Hello Emin - I wish I'd had weather like this during my brief trip to Budapest! this is the classic shot, from Buda Castle looking down, and it's a beauty. Wonderful clear day and bright light lets you see for miles and miles here, and the dome of St. Stephen's is gorgeously detailed here. Thanks!

The bridge is taken from a good angle and from an excellent high POV.
Following its diagonal line we find a beautiful old building of which I don't know the destination or the history and behind that we see an enormous church or cathedral towering above Budapest with its huge down and towers.
You enjoyed beautiful weather. When I visited Budapest it rained almost all the time.
Best regards, Paul

You had some nice strong sunshine to work with and the clarity and brightness of the scene is very well captured. Good composition with the bridge leading the eye diagonally into the main Basilica. There is also a nice mixture of old and modern buildings that grace the waterfront.
Thanks for sharing,
